Applicants needed for Fox Chapel Area School Board

| Tuesday, April 8, 2014, 10:33 a.m.

The Fox Chapel Area School Board needs two new board members.

Residents who live in Region 1 can begin applying this week for the school board seats. Region 1 includes Sharpsburg and Wards 2, 3 and 4 of O'Hara Township.

The positions became open on Monday when the school board accepted the resignations of Sherman Snyder and Robin Baum.

Snyder and Baum each submitted earlier letters stating personal matters as the reason for their resignations.

Snyder has served on the school board for 16 years, winning another four-year term in the November general election.

Baum was first appointed to fill a vacancy in May 2005.

Applicants to the school board must have lived in the district for at least one year. The terms will run through the next municipal election, in November 2015.

Applications can be downloaded at www.fcasd.edu and submitted with a resume by noon, April 25 to Board of School Directors, Solicitor Paul Giuffre, Esq., 221 Commercial Ave., Aspinwall, PA 15215.

Interviews will be conducted at 12:30 p.m. April 26 in the large group instruction room at the high school. The board will vote immediately afterward.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
